If relaxing with a book is your idea of heaven – then these picks could well be your favourite rooms!
June and July sees a flood of literary festivals kicking off up and down the UK so, to celebrate, we’re throwing the spotlight on reading.
We’ve scoured Rightmove to uncover some rooms that would be perfect for lazing away the days with a good book – to hopefully give you some inspiration for creating your own reading space one day!
From studies and snugs to full-blown libraries and brightly lit lounges – check out our 7 picks for serene reading rooms.
From the magnificent oak desk to the patented leather armchair – perfectly located for strong reading light – we love this distinguished reading study in a property in Ravenscourt Park in London.
Moving on to something completely different – a stunning modern looking property! This house boasts a bright, airy snug room with amazing reclining chairs that we can easily imagine sitting back in to read something to make us feel like a proper 21st Century gent. Bret Easton Ellis, anyone?
This well decorated family home near Wandsworth Common in London has many great features – but we’re feeling particularly smitten with this bright, clean-looking snug that looks like the best place to escape the hustle and bustle of family life for some quiet reading time. Who’s with us?
When you’re reading a book there are two main factors that decide how enjoyable the experience is – seating and lighting! This Putney property in London makes sure the latter of those is no issue at all – putting some swish-looking couches right underneath a giant skylight! Even those of us who are getting a little grey behind the ears shouldn’t struggle with that amount of daylight to help us out.
If you consider yourself among the more distinguished of us – and are more likely to be reading Kafka than Katie Price – this could just be the perfect reading room inspiration. Situated in a stunning property in Sussex – this study just screams sophistication!
Our favourite thing about this reading room in a Nottingham property is that it shows that not everyone’s living room has to be focused around the television. And the key message here is – surround yourself with the things you love to create your own perfect reading space!
Along the same lines – this property has simple, homely decor but we love that the space has been built just for relaxing and reading – not simply for a cheeky Netflix binge! Definitely a lesson for all us book-lovers out there!
That’s all, folks! We hope you’ve gained some inspiration for your very own reading room or space to enjoy all the incredible books in your life. Enjoy!
